How I deal with the cold weather/Comment je gère la présence du froid

Winter day at Bushy Park

Does anyone else feel like January has been dragging on forever – the post Christmas months are a bit tough: it’s cold, it’s muddy, the days are short…..We have had a few freezing weeks since Christmas – even though this week the weather is turning mild again but I am pretty sure it will get cold again. I am not very good at dealing with the cold Continue reading

🇬🇧 It’s nearly the 1st September which is freaky. I feel summer is still in full swing.

Pourtant il y a pas quelques jours je me sentais encore en été tant nous avons eu une belle météo dernièrement tant en Bretagne que depuis notre retour a Londres.

I have had such little sleep or such bad quality sleep:( I have just about managed to keep my head above water with coffee, motivation and knowing I just have to carry on cause….there’s no one else to take over during the day.

So when one of my lovely friends came round the other night and brought me these 2 Vichy products, I thought – here is someone who is a mum too and understands what my life is like at the moment!
